My Chaulk family research starts in St. Helens, Lancashire, where my mother Elsie Chaulk was married to my father. She lived in the area since she was a child and was born in nearby Earlestown. Her family originated in Great Haseley in Oxfordshire, and they moved to the North West probably in search of work during the boom in industry and the railways.
Like most family names there are spelling variations but once they became literate they seemed to adopt the spelling which included the letter "u".
